  1. it came with two connectors because it needs two... but barely, you could probably use another molex to 6 pin if your psu doesn't have a 6 pin nativley as long as your psu can handle it watt wise. post your system specs so we can look at power draw and wattage/brandof psu so we can see if the psu can really handle it (450 barely needs the second but if your psu has no 6 pins its possible it might not have enough wattage for it)

    No you cant it needs the feed from 2 molex conectors.
    @ g00fysmiley I think you are a bit confused All GeForce GTS 450 variants require just a single PCI-Express power connector not two.

    @ jezza
    If your PSU dosent have a PCIE cinnector and it dosent hav e2 Molex conectors then it probably cant support the card anyway.

  3. ahh yes, i thought he meant 460 so two 6 pin... yea if he doesn't have 2 free molex i'd doubt the psu could cut it... good news is good psu's for a single 450 would be super cheap :D

  6. Dear friend, your system is fine. GTS 450 works good with 550 psu. just enjoy. try window xp sp3 instead of vista.
